The Restorative Justice in Education program at Eastern Mennonite University provides quality professional opportunities that will help you influence decision-making and prepare you to handle a wide range of instructional and non-instructional tasks. 


The Restorative Justice in Education program at Eastern Mennonite University is committed to culturally responsive teaching, peacebuilding, and restorative approaches in which critical caring within relationships is paramount. 

Program Overview
